House plants are an integral part of my decorating style and philosophy.  
African violets (saintpaulia sp) are among my favorites.  

Luminescent blooms tower over velvety green, heart-shaped leaves.  They come in a multitude of colors, but of course, my preference is for white blooms.

My African violets have never looked this good.

The difference is in the pot.  I bought this pot specifically designed for African violets last fall. These planters are nothing new, but I had been skeptical of this design and not thought it worth the extra money. 
Boy I was wrong!  
This planter has a porous inner pot and a glazed outer pot.  All you do is simply keep a supply of water in the outer pot and the inner one draws in as much water as it needs.  
It could not be any more simple.

A mulch of decorative rock keeps the moisture in.  
Flowering indoor plants satisfy my gardening needs during the cold weather months.  

Until next time...


  1. I love your white African Violet Anne.....and, it looks SO healthy. I love gardening and tending the flowers in the garden BUT.....I'm not so good with indoor plants. Maybe I need one of those pots !! XXXX

  2. I had no idea there were special pots for African violets. I need one of those for all my neglected indoor plants. Think it would work?


Your thoughts are always greatly appreciated. Thank you for visiting!
